LOS ANGELES — Conversations must begin honestly. It is perfectly legitimate to analyze leaders with critical lenses. People fight and die for this freedom. Times are serious, and Obama may not be. The question of whether OBama is lazy evokes everything from discomfort to rage. Yet asking and answering questions provokes "national conversations" that President Obama cherishes. Racism exists (thankfully, such views are marginalized) and in the past. Calling blacks "lazy" is one way for racists to spread their message. Denying the connotation denies history. So how can calling Obama lazy not be racist?
Comments: He´s arrogant, lazy and incompetent. The only thing I would quibble with in the article is that he says 0bama is a "Hawaiian Christian" and not a Kenyan Muslim subversive. There is too much evidence to the contrary.
Is Obama lazy? Well, Duhhhhh! He´s also un-American, has a Communist agenda, doesn´t know much about economics except how to spend us into oblivion, wants to take our guns away, has control over our lives, and the topper is that he is most probably a Muslim.
Is ´Hawaian Christian´ a fancy word for Muslim? Oh, yeah, nothing is right in America anymore.
As the symbolic first black president Obama had to succeed. If he failed or was only mediocre the public might begin to question the media´s decades of promoting the benefits of diversity.
So the media had to pretend Obama was successful even though he wasn´t. They did this by blaming other people or other factors for his lack of accomplishments. Also, he had to be re-elected or it would make America look intolerant. But now that he has been re-elected, and can´t run again, the media might begin to be a little more honest in its Obama coverage.
Apples and oranges. It isn´t his color that makes him lazy it is his sense of entitlement with the power provided to him. Much of it unchallenged. He uses "executive order" for others to do the job he was elected to do.
Yes, he is lazy. He is also self-aggrandizing and petty. And he hates America and Americans. He doesn´t like black people, white people or any other race of people. He´s a misanthrope. He´s also greedy. And not too bright. He´s conceited and foolish.
Shall I go on? He´s one of the worst human beings ever to hold high office in the history of the world. And, no, I´m not exaggerating.
"lazy" implies there is work Stinky is capable of doing but doesn´t. I can think of nothing in his known history that is the result of his labor. He´s been a mannequin his whole life, propped up by others.
We merely human working taxpayers and financially self sufficient know so little about this it (entity ) that a judgement of that sort is not possible. If it is human then it´s knowledge of it´s glorious superiority leaves it bored with it´s mentors assignment to destroy every last vestage of America, The Constitution and Bill of Rights, The Family, Christanity , Judaism, and Capitalism. The first debate highlighted this ho humm boredom it often displays. It seems to display to it´s subjects, boredom, contempt, and disdain.
I´ve got a new name for dopey followers of this lazy foreign exchange student, the ones Rush calls "low-information voters", otherwise known as what Red used to say on THAT 70´s SHOW, "dumbasses"....Ready?
I now call them all...."Pavlov´s Dogs" !
Barry Soetoro rings a bell and watch all the corrupt enemedia, the academia, the welfare cheats, the lazy bums, the thugs, the video game players, the idiots on TV, the advertising community, the Google and Yahoo crowd....watch them all salivate and bow to the Messiah! Truly, Pavlovs Dogs!
He was identified long ago by some very evil interests to be the smiling front man in the "fundamental transformation" of America. Of course he´s lazy (among other negative attributes); he just reads what is put in front of him by his control, one Valerie Jarrett.
Everyone knew all this and MORE before this man was elected the first time and most certainly the second time. There is no use complaining now. There in NOTHING we can do about it now. We will have to put up with it and I think it will go on for much longer that four years. His czars want him to be a dictator and they, I think, will accomplish that. This country is no longer a free country!!!!
Lazy?? Look at it this way. Obie´s transformation of the USA would not be happening with the lightening speed if he was lazy. I´m sure his inner circle is working 24/7 to complete the transformation before anyone wakes up. But, at the end of the day, Obie is making the key decisions on this.
I don´t know if he is lazy about things like doing housework, picking up after himself, etc. But indications are Obama is intellectually lazy, which I think is quite common among super-brains as well as dullards. Leftism is intellectually lazy. Leftists never challenge their own assumptions. Leftists rely on cliches, stereotypes and caricatures. The footage of Obama as a law instructor at the blackboard is shockingly sophomoric. His laziness means he hasn´t learned anything, he´s carrying on with the same old Community Rabble Rouser shtick.
Using lazy to describe Barack O. Davis... is lazy. Arrogant, narcissistic, and incompetent are better descriptors for a man lacking the intellect, experience or work ethic to run a lemonade stand... successfully.
Pretty successful for a lazy guy. Lazy is the opposition who can´t pin the tail on this donkey. He does everything but drive the truck across the border with the guns in it and his ´enemies´ can´t put him anywhere near it. In fact they can´t hold anyone responsible for a direct order from DC to AZ to sell deadly weapons to obvious drug cartel criminals. How does a ´lazy´ man pull that off? Scooter Libby went to jail over NOTHING and these guys explain on camera how they are not going to enforce voter intimidation laws because you are white and they are black. Yet nothing happens. Lazy? No.
"Mainstream critics do not see Obama as evil, but then being evil would require effort."
that is a knock out funny line.
Was it Doug Brinkley or Michael Beschloss (both of whom should know better) that said that Obama has the highest IQ of any president in history. How on earth would he know that and on what is it based? I am not saying Obama is dumb but I haven´t ever heard him say anything I regarded as particularly intelligent. Does anyone seriously believed Obama has a higher IQ than say, Thomas Jefferson?
President Obama has recalled John Podesta to work at the White House as a “counselor.” Podesta is the Clinton hand who founded the far-left Center for American Progress (home of the clownish Think Progress blog). Podesta’s appointment, which needs no congressional approval, comes at a time when Obama is already making moves to do without Congress. He has used executive actions to re-write Obamacare, and to recalibrate immigration law, both in ways that just happen to favor either himself or the Democrats. The New York Times reports that Podesta will work on executive actions when he returns to the White
On CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, new host Brian Stelter turned to President Obama the press critic. At the end of his cakewalk “Hardball” interview last week, Obama called out the media for being divisive. “The American people are good and they are decent. And yes, we get very divided partly because our politics and our media specifically tries to divide them and splinter them.” Stelter asked a decent question about whether that was an odd statement to make on divisive MSNBC. NPR television critic Eric Deggans shot that down, insisting MSNBC was a “great place” to attack cable news
Former CIA Director Leon Panetta revealed classified information at a 2011 awards ceremony attended by Zero Dark Thirty filmmaker Mark Boal, according to documents obtained by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch. The CIA allowed Boal, the screenwriter of Zero Dark Thirty, to attend a June 24, 2011 award ceremony celebrating the successful raid on Osama bin Laden’s hideout in Abbottabad, Pakistan that May. A transcript of Panetta’s speech that night obtained by Judicial Watch is labeled “top secret,” and significant portions of it are redacted. At the conclusion his speech, Panetta told the audience, “You have made me proud
UPDATE: Rep. Paul Ryan and Sen. Patty Murray unveiled a budget proposal Tuesday night. The proposal, which has yet to be voted on, busts through sequester caps, setting FY 2014 spending at $1.014 trillion — billions beyond the levels mandated by sequester. The proposal contains no mention of pension reform. Conservatives had better start paying attention to the budget battle raging in Washington: If things go south — and they are poised to do just that — the tea party’s single greatest policy victory, the sequester, could be destroyed. And worse yet, it could be destroyed in exchange for nothing. The sequester
Approval of ObamaCare in the United States has risen eight percentage points in the last month, according to a new poll. Thirty-nine percent of people now approve of the law, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday evening. Half of the public, by contrast, disapproves of ObamaCare, the poll found. Nearly 60 percent say they don’t think the sign-up process for ObamaCare is going well, but more than one-third say it’s improving. These figures come in just ten days after the administration touted the repaired federal portal for the insurance, HealthCare.gov. Obama’s general job approval rating has increased to 42 percent,
Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.), in an appearance on MSNBC´s "PoliticsNation" on Friday, condemned former Sen. Rick Santorum´s comments comparing Nelson Mandela´s fight against apartheid to the fight against Obamacare as "shameful." "And actually if I was going to make a comparison, I would make the opposite comparison, because I think the struggle for justice, which Nelson Mandela led for so many years is similar as the struggle for the health care as a right for people in the richest country in the world, and so the idea that they would make that comparison in the opposite way is just tragic,"
According to a new Rasmussen Report, the majority of Americans do not believe the deportation of illegal immigrants living in the United States is aggressive enough. More than 20 House Democrats last week urged President Obama to halt the deportation of illegal immigrants until Congress passes a comprehensive immigration reform plan, but voters by a two-to-one margin oppose that idea. Most already think the federal government is not vigilant enough in deporting those who are in this country illegally. Only 29% of Likely U.S. Voters think the government should stop deporting illegal immigrants until Congress passes an immigration reform plan.
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
